Jesus Was Arrested
Bible Passage: Matthew 26:47-56
Memory Verse: 10 This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son
as a sacrifice to take away our sins. 1 John 4:10 (NLT)
Bottom Line: I love Jesus because He loves me.
Big Picture Question: Why did Jesus die on the cross? Jesus died on the cross to forgive us from our sins and came back to life to show that we are forgiven.
Christ Connection: Jesus was betrayed and arrested. What happened to Jesus was not fair. He did not deserve to be betrayed by His friends. He did not deserve to be treated like a criminal. He did not deserve to be arrested and killed. But Jesus was willing to suffer and die so that we could be forgiven and have eternal life—life forever with God! This is grace, favor we do not deserve. We cannot save ourselves, but we can look to Jesus and trust in Him for our salvation.
